With multiple servers, if one server gives the wrong time, this is detected, and the server is unused for a while. For the reliability of _access_ to the server, it won't help much, because all servers are on the other end of this meager adsl-line. But indeed, time is of no critical importance to me, so maybe I should just remove a few of the servers.
